Girl Scouts of Colorado has volunteers committed to creating horseback riding opportunities for Girl Scouts across the state. We are happy to announce that Julie Fischer, former Statewide Horseback Director, has offered to stay on with GSCO as horseback riding volunteer to continue to develop horse programs away from GSCO properties. She will continue to develop connections with riding facilities and stables to offer Girl Scouts options and opportunities to ride at a discount. Julie will also continue to develop and host events and activities with facilities that Girl Scouts can attend in connection with horses. She is working on Wrangler in Training (WIT) opportunities that would allow older Girl Scouts to still learn and obtain skills relating to horses.
Julie is also working on additional riding opportunities so troops/girls have riding options they can opt into during their overnight camp experiences at summer camps, similar to what Magic Sky was able to offer this past summer. She is also connecting with outdoor organizations who do high adventure and outdoor opportunities for scouts as well. Anyone who has information on facilities near them already offering discounts or who may be interested, or anyone who is interested in helping Julie go forward with developing other horse options as a volunteer, please contact her at email@example.com
We are also excited to see that Julie will be moving on to pursue her PhD – Doctor of Management in Organizational Leadership from University of Phoenix.
